Mathieu Morlighem is an Associate Professor at the Earth System Science Department at the University of California, Irvine. His research interests are focused on better understanding and explaining ongoing changes in the Cryosphere, as well as reducing uncertainties in the ice sheet contribution to sea level rise using numerical modeling.

Mathieu graduated from Ecole Centrale Paris in 2008, with a major in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and received a PhD in 2011 from the same university, in partnership with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the following topic “Ice sheet properties inferred by combining numerical modeling and remote sensing data”. He is one of the founders and core developers of the JPL/UCI Ice Sheet System Model, a new generation, high-resolution, higher-order physics Ice Sheet Model.
